A simple python product will do. Just subclass it to OFS.Folder.Folder and 
stick in your manage_afterAdd()
(when using manage_afterAdd(), note a previous list email about using this 
for ZPT by me)

ZClasses are suitable for less serious classes.
Try to go for python product first and foremost if you can.
